Is the data stored or sent to Apple or Google?

No. All app data is sent from the devices to our servers in encrypted form. Data is stored in our secure databases with access to only authorized individuals. No study data is stored on users phone.

Describe in detail the protections that will be implemented to maintain the confidentiality of consent forms and data.

We follow all industry best practices for HIPAA compliance. Data is sent from the devices to our servers in encrypted form using SSL encryption. All images and signature images are encoded. All database access is restricted to authorized individuals only. An audit log is maintained for all server access.

Where and how will data be stored?

Data is stored in our secure databases with access to only authorized individuals. This includes all images too. No study data such as participant name, consent, survey responses is stored on users phone. Only data that is already being tracked on their phone using phone sensors like GPS, barometer, step tracking and which maybe also shared by the user for the purpose of the study remains on the phone as that data is outside the study app itself and the study app does not have permission to delete this data from the user’s phone.

How long will the data be stored?

Data is stored on our servers as long as the researcher / research team want the study app to be hosted live on the App stores. After the study app is removed, we store the data only for a period of 30 days. All data is made available to study teams via secure download. Study teams can also download the data anytime and request deletion before the 30 day period. Once the data is deleted it will no longer be stored or available with TrialX

Who will have access to all study materials?

The Principle Investigator, who creates the app using Appbakery will get access to the study data hosted on Appbakery. Thereafter they can download the data as CSV/Excel files and share it with their research team as they see fit.

How will study materials be destroyed?

Appbakery only provides the platform to build the study app and store the study data. Once the study is data collection is done, we will delete the App and the study data within 30 days of study app is closed.

How will data be transported and who is responsible for receipt or transmission of the data?

All data collected by the app is held strictly confidential and secure. Data is sent to our servers in encrypted form using SSL(secure socket layer) standard technology.

Will data be used for future research?

Depending on the study and research team plans, data may be used for future research. Appbakery does not control how the research team will use the data collected.

Where will data analysis take place and how will data security be maintained during analysis?

Appbakery provides the data collected by the study app as downloadable files. The research team can run analysis on their local software outside Appbakery and will need to follow their institutional process to maintain security during the analysis process.

Can you help me with estimate for my Grant or IRB submission?

Yes. We have tools to help you get materials for putting in your grant and also generating an IRB packet once you build an app.

We need several apps for our institution, can I get a bulk license?

Yes, we do offer a bulk license – you can get it touch

How can I make payments?

You will need to put a credit card and we will bill it monthly and generate an invoice PDF. Please contact us if you need to send in payments through a different mechanism.

Why should I use and not build my own Appbakery app?

Yes, you can build your own App. But building an App can easily take 4 months or more. Plus you will need to write two apps, one for Apple iOS and one for Android phones. This can cost you easily $50,000 plus, with Appbakery you get an app in minutes and it runs on both iOS and Android.
